Provolone Piccante

Provolone Piccante

Cheese Type

Although Provolone is native to southern Italy, the majority nowadays is made in Italy’s north. This semi hard stretched curd cheese is produced in much the same way as mozzarella. It comes in a variety of different shapes and sizes and has a thin hard rind which is shiny golden yellow and sometimes waxed.

There are two varieties of Provolone; Piccante (meaning sharp) is matured for longer to develop more spicy aged characters. It has a drier body and has stronger flavours than Dolce.
